I am researching Richter/Kuchler from Sohland area. Also Macy, presume they came from Britain to Germany, then on to USA in PA/NY/OH areas.

Thanks for your suggestion, Casidy.
No, I haven't. Not that sure where he was born. Some material suggests Evansville, which is in Vanderburgh Co.; some suggests Randolph Co. Not near each other. That was my next step: to try to resolve where in Indiana. Church records are great suggestion if I can tie him down better, or if they just suggest family movement after his birth.

Joan,
Have you tried looking to see if there are any church records you might be able to search?

Hello, I am looking for the Burg Family from Koblenz, Rhineland area.
Comment by Leslie Mehana on July 8, 2009 at 1:36pm
I first meet Louisa Klinefelter in Pittsburgh on 6 Aug 1857 when she marries Henry Tirrell (also Tirril), a stone cutter (think those glorious funerary statues). She was the daughter of the sternwheeler captain mentioned in Mark Twain's memoir about his brother's death.
She was born 7 May 1839 in Pittsburgh and died 26 Sept 1878, one year and one month after the passing of her husband, in Bunker Hill, Macoupin, IL. They are both buried in a family plot in the cemetery there.

I am looking for just one line. HOLZGRAFE anywhere. Ferdinand b. 1854 in Indiana; various census records, etc. say parents b. Germany or Prussia. I don't really know where to turn as uncertain who his parents were. Any advice welcomed.

Hope this turns into a great discussion area for doing German research. I have many lines from Germany from various time periods.
